Steelers sign pair to contracts

PITTSBURGH – The Pittsburgh Steelers signed a pair of players to reserve/future contracts Thursday, including safety Jordan Dangerfield.

Dangerfield went to training camp with the Steelers last July and flashed in the first couple of weeks. The 5-foot-11, 199-pound Dangerfield was among the cuts when the Steelers trimmed their roster to 75 players in late August.

The Steelers brought Dangerfield back during the regular season when they signed him to the practice squad because of injuries at safety.

The Steelers also signed wide receiver L’Damian Washington, who signed with the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent last year and spent time on the practice squads of the Cleveland Browns, New York Giants and Miami Dolphins.

The 6-4, 200-pound Washington caught 100 passes for 1,735 yards and 15 touchdowns at Missouri.
